Daily, Dr. Milton, of Sheldon, is a well-trained and most promising young physician. He is the son of Ziba B. Daily, a well-to-do farmer, worth about $40,000. Dr. Dailyís father was born in 1830 in Northmoreland, Pennsylvania, and is of American parentage. At the age of eighteen he began learning the tannerís and courierís trade, and worked at it for seven years, at the end of which time, in 1852, he came west, settling first at Thornton, Indiana, where he remained until April 1, 1855, when he came to Waukon, Iowa, for a few months, and finally located on a farm near Le Roy, Moner County, Minnesota, where he has since resided. For many years he taught school during the winter time. The Doctorís mother, Jane C. Vargason, was born in 1836 at Sharon, Michigan, and is of German parentage. She was brought up and lived on a farm until 1854, when she moved with her parents to Indiana, and from there to Waukon, Iowa. She was married to Mr. Daily in the fall of 1855, just before his removal to Minnesota.

Dr. Milton Daily was born on his fatherís farm at Le Roy, Moner County, Minnesota, October 26, 1869. He began his education in the country school, and after completing a high school course entered Carlton college at Northfield, Minnesota, in 1889. He attended the institution three years, during which time he was a member of the Philomathean society. He left Carlton college in the spring of 1892, and entered the medical department of Hamline university at Minneapolis, where he completed a course in medicine, graduating in the spring of 1895 with the degree of M.D.C.M. Immediately after his graduation he began the practice of medicine in partnership with Dr. F.R. Woodard, at 211 Franklin avenue, Minneapolis. Here he remained the balance of the year, and on January 1, 1896, he opened up an office of his own at Sheldon, OíBrien County, Iowa, where he still remains, enjoying a good practice.
